Free Platinum Guard!

Software Description

The following is a description of Platinum Guard, as per the developer:

Platinum Guard helps you to remove any unnecessary files from your computer, allowing Windows to perform faster, while freeing up some valuable hard disk space, which otherwise would have been lost.

Apart from that Platinum Guard is also an excellent utility to protect your privacy. Internet Browsers for example, including popular titles such as; Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera, will generally store several data files that contain sensitive information related to your browsing history and behavior.

These data files can easily reveal numerous amounts of private information such as files that you may have downloaded, video clips that you might have watched, websites that you have previously visited and almost all pictures you have viewed on the web. Anyone with a little advanced computer knowledge can easily turn these sensitive data files into human understandable information, thus compromising your personal privacy.

But do not panic! If you have Platinum Guard installed on your computer, you do not need to worry any longer. With just a simple click of a button, this software product will automatically take care of covering up any of your browsing history and behavior, allowing you to use your personal computer peacefully again knowing that your privacy is now secure.

And that is not all. Platinum Guard also comes equipped with several advanced features such as Mozilla Firefox SQLite Database Vacuuming, Un-compression of Compressed Old Files and the Two-Click Intensive Computer Cleaner all make sure this product is truly your one-stop-tool when it comes to computer clean-up and maintenance.

Finally we would like you to keep in mind that Platinum Guard was designed with utmost care in order to ensure that it is completely safe and secure to use. It has been developed with multiple levels of validation and routine checks to ensure that it cannot delete any useful information or documents that you or your computer might still be needing.

dotTech Advice

dotTech reviewed Platinum Guard (v4.0.0) last year. Here is what we think about it:

While yes its performance is not too bad, Platinum Guard is a software that is – in my opinion – not fully developed and has too many shortcomings.[…]

Platinum Guard needs some work before it can be used by mainstream users; until then, it is only an ordinary program.[…]

Some dotTechies have asked me in the past why I post about freebies that I don’t like or don’t give a positive rating to. The reason is two-fold, and it applies to this Platinum Guard freebie also:

  • Many people ask to me post about specific freebies. If I get continued requests about the same freebie, I tend to post about it.
  • I can only tell you what my opinion is about a program. I cannot control what you install on your computer. There are many people that may take dotTech’s advice into consideration but not necessarily do as we say.

By posting about about a freebie I am not saying “go and get it”. I am saying “hey look this freebie is available and this is what I think about it”. The decision of if you want to get the freebie or not is your decision to make; my job is to tell you about it.

    offer must be over–all i get is a long succession of pages of hex-type characters. Oh, well, try another one.

  • eee

    On the promo page they say:
    “Last Update: 21st December 2010”
    Actually, that’s 21st December 2009, they just changed the date. The Changelog page has it right.
    It’s bit-by-bit identical to the one given away one year ago (I still have the old package and compared).

  • Josh

    OK. I read the previous article and can see where it differs from CCleaner. Still I’m happy with the various “old” apps, which do all the different tasks well enough for me.

  • Josh

    I thought CCleaner could do this? Is there something I missed?

  • Canuck50

    Have just arrived back from reading the original review and I find myself not all that impressed with Platinum Guard. I will be uninstalling this program from my download folder right away. History Killer Pro pretty much doe’s the same thing. I also have a couple of FireFox extensions that do similar jobs as well. Thanks again for the help and look forward to everyone’s views in the coming months.

  • Canuck50

    Thank you Shades. I will read the review now. Sorry, somehow I just over looked the link.

  • Ashraf

    @Canuck50: Why don’t you read dotTech’s review? As Shades pointed out you can access dotTech’s review via a link in the article above… or by visiting

  • Canuck50

    Thank you for the follow up Ashraf. I went ahead and used IE8 (yuck) to download Platinum Guard but since it was an “MSI” program I did not install it. I will wait until I hear more about this program before I install it within my FireFox browser. I really want to know about a program before I allow one to integrate itself within my browser.

  • Shades

    @Canuck50: If you look above, under dotTech Advice, you’ll see a link, in the first sentence, which takes you to last year’s review.


  • Ashraf

    @jimmy: You are welcome!

    @Abdulah El-Alheam: Glad to know I can be of help. Happy ’11 to you, too!

    P.S. How’s the weather this time of the year in Egypt?

    @jumbi: Hehe, I thought so too. =P

    @raven: Thank you for the kind wishes! inshAllah (God willing, for those that don’t understand Arabic) dotTech will continue to be a success.

    @Harry44Callahan: Glad to know we can be of service!

    Dirty Harry: Is that a reference to anything, or just something you like to call yourself? It sounds very familiar, for some reason, like it may be from a famous book or movie…

    @marcoscu: You are welcome!

    @Canuck50: I would love to but I reviewed v4.0.0 last year and it is still v4.0.0 right now so there is nothing new.

    @Canuck50: I had the same problem. Please use Internet Explorer – it works fine in there.

  • Canuck50

    Hello Again: I decided that I would take a look at it for myself. However when I attempted to use the “Full Free Download” link I was taken to another page which contained nothing but code. This page also froze my browser (FireFox) where upon I had to “X” out of the page. Any others having this problem? Any help would be appreciated. This is the first time that this happened from one of the links provided here.

    Happy New Year Ashraf: I for one appreciate your views on a program. I am not a “Newbie” however I am not a “Pro” either when it comes to computers. So I find your comments and other readers comments to be valuable advice. Please keep up the fantastic job that you do throughout the year. I see by the above comment that you made regarding Platinum Guard that this was your view from last year. As I have only been a fan of yours for a couple of months now, I do not know when your comment was last posted. Would there be any chance of having an update of your comment for this program? I will keep an eye for this as well as what others have to say regarding this one.

    Happy New Year to Everyone from Canada

  • Many thanks…

    Personally I like to hear about all the software Ashy and company have to review. Good or bad it’s good to know and helps me make informed decisions on software. I consider myself a power user when it comes to software usage having over 100 programs presently installed (and working together) on my Win7 x 64 work-station. I’m also in the PC business so need to be able to recommend programs.

    Keep up the good work Ashy and whoever maybe helping you. You guys do a lot of the ground work for me and I appreciate it—good or bad.

  • jumbi

    great “freebie” policy explanation :-)

  • Abdulah El-Alheam

    Very good comment above Ashraf. Never stop offering YOUR informative advise though about the software you post. It’s your comments about the software that allows me to decide if I install it or not on my computer. A happy new year to my friend.
